So you got engaged (YAY!) and have been elbows deep in all the wedding planning details, checking Pinterest for new inspiration daily, and dreaming of your big day 24/7! It’s time to take a break for a weekend away with your squad to celebrate YOU! That’s right it’s bachelorette party time (WOO HOO!!!) and you’ve decided you want to go somewhere sunny, warm, and fun! The first thought everyone seems to have is VEGAS BABY!! But you don’t want that, you want something a little different! So here are my top 6 bachelorette party locations that are not Vegas but just as crazy and fun!
6. Life’s too short to drink bad wine! Love wine and want to enjoy wine tasting in the most gorgeous place? Napa is the place for you! Take your girls and rent a house with a pool where you can relax in the sun then get dressed up and go wine tasting!
5. Texas Forever!
4. Empire State of Mind!
Channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw (or Serena Vanderwoodsen XOXO) and head to New York City! The city that never sleeps is full of so many fun things. Whether you want to go to a Broadway show, drink Cosmopolitans at the hottest night clubs, shop till you drop, or heck all of the above New York has it all! During the day take a walk through central park, visit the Met (lunch on the Met steps anyone?), and maybe even check out the Statue of Liberty, then get all dolled up for a night out on the town! With so many options you can never go wrong in NYC! Plus for you Sex and the City lovers out there you can go on a tour by day of all the iconic places in your favorite show!
3. Princess for the weekend!
Disneyland is calling! The perfect bachelorette for a true Disney lover. Buy park hopper passes and have a blast going on rides in Disneyland and California Adventure with cocktail breaks in downtown Disney. Eat at Ariel’s Grotto in California Adventure where the princesses come to your table while you eat! Basically it’s any Disney lovers dream come true! Don’t forget the matching Minnie ears!
2. Beach bums!
Love day drinking and relaxing on the beach? San Diego is the perfect place for you! With so many beaches you can’t get bored. Buy some fun floaties to take to the beach with you trust me you can’t go wrong with a giant flamingo floatie in the ocean! Make sure one of the days there you hit up Belmont Park. Ride the rides and go to Cannonball for some AMAZING sushi! Another day go explore at Hotel Del Coronado. Walk around the hotel and check out the shops then go sit on the deck over the beach at the Sundeck Grill and enjoy some cocktails and delicious food (ask for Ben he’s the best waiter around)! For a fun afternoon and fabulous dinner make sure you go to Old Town San Diego! At night you have to hit up the Gaslamp Quarter! The best place for a night on the town with a ton of different bar options! Whether you want to go dancing, bull riding, or just enjoy some fun cocktails, that area has it all!
1. Country girl shake it for me!
Pack your cowgirl boots and get ready to dance the weekend away! Downtown Nashville has live music nearly 24/7 and so many fun bars you’ll want to stay for more than a weekend to not miss a thing. Walk through downtown Nashville during the day and check out all the amazing boot shops and restaurants! Don’t forget to get ice cream at Mike’s Downtown (you may even luck out with a celebrity sighting). At night you can’t miss Tootsie’s and the Big Bang Dueling Piano Bar! Also don’t forget to go to Coyote Ugly downtown, live out your movie dreams and dance on the bar! Trust me you won’t regret it! And lastly if you’re a true country music fan don’t forget to make it to the Grand Ole Opry. Try and catch a concert there but if that’s not possible go take the tour and check out the Opryland Hotel. Full of amazing stores, restaurants, and even a gondola ride it is definitely work checking out!
